History & Experience
Diane worked at The Priory Hospital for several years, where she was involved in the development of services for the treatment and assessment of patients. These patients presented with a range of conditions such as anxiety, depression and addiction. In addition, Diane worked across the Addictions and Eating Disorder Units. After Diane’s work at The Priory she helped run a social care charity for 15 years, providing support and infrastructures to families in need and with severe mental health challenges.

Although Diane’s main work is face to face in her private practice she also provides on-line sessions to clients anywhere in the world.
